My daughter-in-law lost her mother today. She has not had any contact with her for several years. Further more she had a falling out with her and told her she felt that she did not exist and told her not to list her as next of kin. We believe the mother did not have a will. The mother lives in NSW with her boyfriend. Her parents are still alive and living in NSW. My daughter-in-law, son and children live in SA. \ Who would be responsible for paying the funeral expenses?
